Been watching the Youtube channel of this Russian guy named NFKRZ (No F**KeRZ, it seems). He shows life in Russia. Here, he shows the modern apartment buildings being constructed in many cities. Kinda fascinating, and the guy's pretty cool to listen to.

That was pretty interesting.

Cool Russian guy. Cool

And at 16:50 he makes the case for the superiority of communism/socialism over capitalism.

Thanks, Thor. 

Would never have expected that out of you. LOL

He hardly makes the case for Communism. He has one video about some pro-Commie American kid who he jokes might be autistic. He's no fan of Communism.

Besides, I think I mentioned here years ago, about a friend of my bro's who was sent by AT+T to be some sorta financial officer for their Russian communications division (or something like that). He said conditions were horrible. It's all about corruption. I remember him saying how the airports flooded regularly. He said the Russian culture was damaged by lifetimes of Commie rule.

Besides, I don't think that's news.


Oh, and by the way, I was also watching a video about Stalin's "Cannibal Island" in Siberia. You can look it up, but I think you get the idea.

Hey, it's no big deal to me either way, but the guy clearly states that in the old, commie Russia, people got to live in decent housing. Then he sarcastically thanks modern Russian capitalism.

And to be clear, I didn't say he was a big fan of communism. But he did point out one instance in which an outcome under communism, was superior to capitalism.

I was just surprised I'd see something like that in one of your posts. Wink

Really? It's not as if he's saying Commie construction is good; it's just better than what the scam artists there are building.

Seriously, I wasn't the least bit concerned that I was in the slightest way, giving any credit to Commies.

In fact, I think in the second video, he briefly makes fun of Trump.

I am not a die hard proponent of either socialism or capitalism because they both have plusses and minuses.

I think the best economic system would be based on capitalism with some of the good elements of socialism included.

A hybrid system.

And honestly, that is basically what we have now.

I think we could stand to tweak it a bit, with a bit more elements of socialism.
